Ram deals

Has anyone spotted any decent RAM deals in the UK? I'm after replacing my stock 256mb with two sticks of something better (minimum 2*256 mb)

so far have only found kingston or corsair at anything that I call affordable...

You already have DDR400 ram but you want faster? might I suggest that you would benefit far more from going up to a gig of ram than just faster.

Also if a performance boost is what you're after then games will benefit far more from a new vid card

Ahh just read your other post which mentions the memory screwing up. So I take it you just want an affordable replacement for your current memory?

In that case you can go for the OcUK Value 512MB (2x256MB) PC3200 kit at £34.02

thanks for your thoroughness

do ppl report this stuff being alright or am i going to find myself in the same position as I am with Dabs (i.e. with some duff RAM and no recourse because they deny Everything, EVER!)
